Oyster in the News – 100 Women in Hedge Funds Reaches Bermuda Membership Target
Efforts by a group of Bermuda business women to achieve a critical launch milestone of members for an island location of 100 Women in Hedge Funds (100WHF) have been successful, according to the Bermuda Business Development Association (BDA).
Alison Morrison, Managing Director of Oyster Consulting (Bermuda) Ltd. is a member of the BDA, an independent group that encourages foreign direct investment and helps companies start up, re-locate or expand their business in Bermuda. Recently, The BDA hosted members of the 100WHF as they explore the option of using Bermuda as a location.
A spokesperson said last week, “A 100-member minimum is required to officially launch a regional location of the respected global organization, which links more than 13,000 professional women in the alternative investment, asset management, investor and broader financial services industry.
“We are proud of this milestone, and we thank Bermuda women for their support, but it’s just the beginning,” said Morrison. “We’ve met the 100-women mark—now the real work begins.”
The group will move ahead with plans to create committees, attract more members, and hold an official launch event this June.
